Year 2000 question



There has been a discussion in our office about the Year 2000 computing
problem.  For instance, the P2 link with Y2K.  Any computerized systems
that control manufacturing processes, wastewater treatment and/or other big
systems with big pipes that have effluent flowing through them could be
vulnerable to disruption if those computers wake up thinking it's 1900.
There could be a lot of liability, not to mention damage, if a Y2K shutdown
results in spills and emissions.  Getting those systems over the 2000 hump
could be thought of as P2, in a way.  Has anyone out there been thinking
about this problem and how it can be resolved.  Any ideas would be great.
Thanks.
